Am Fam Physician. 1999 Nov 15;60(8):2238.

The article “Current Trends in Cervical Ripening and Labor Induction” (August 1999, page 477) provided incorrect dosage units for misoprostol (Cytotec) in several places (twice in the third paragraph of the text on page 481 and in three places in Table 6). The correct dosage unit for intravaginal misoprostol used in cervical ripening is micrograms. In addition, Table 4 of the same article contained an incorrect key in the footnote. The correct key is as follows: −3 = in the pelvis; +3 = on the perineum; 0 = engaged.
